What is IPL and how does it work?

Intense Pulsed Light uses warm gentle light to put hair to sleep. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) uses warm gentle pulses of light to put the hair to sleep, preventing it from growing back for up to 12 months*. With Lumea, women typically see a 92% hair reduction after just three treatments**.


*Median hair reductions after 12 treatments: 86% on lower legs, 70% on bikini, 67% on armpits.

**Measured on legs, after 3 treatments, 27 out of 55 women reach 92% or higher results

Is IPL suitable for me?

Lumea IPL 9000 is effective on naturally dark blonde, brown and black hair and on skin tones from very white to dark brown. As with other IPL-based treatments Lumea cannot be used to treat white, grey, light blonde or red hair and is not suitable for very dark skin.
